Beef Noodle Soup, Part I

Make the beef soup stock the night before, there is a reason for this, you'll see tomorrow. The ingredients are simple:
Oxtails, 4 or 5 thin slices of ginger, 1 star anise, 1 clove, 3 or 4 peppercorns, small amount of cinnamon and 1/4 cup of cooking wine.

Put everything in pot, add water and slowly simmer for 4 to 5 hours then let it sit over night and cool (actually I boiled the oxtails quickly first and then washed them in cold water to eliminate impurities before putting all the ingredients together and slowly cooking the oxtails, oh yeah, I also added one spring onion)

I made that like last week. It's basically the same recipe as yours, except triple the amount of spices and add soy sauce. Mmmm, beef noodle soup.... - T.
